Films capture journeys but in Imtiaz Ali’s much-awaited Highway, the journey has made the film. Presented by Sajid Nadiadwala and starring Alia Bhatt and Randeep Hooda, the film traverses six states of India and captures the landscape of the different regions as it goes along. To go with the theme and style of the film, Highway Diaries will share the experiences of the journey. These are essentially a glimpse into the myriad experiences that the cast and crew went through during the shoot, being put out in short video episodes lasting one to two minutes.
Each of these episodes – and there will be 18 to 20 of them punctuated over the next couple of months – has been put together in a way that it gives a feel of the journey. And while the look of these videos has been kept close to that of the film, they are not to be mistaken as the first look of Highway the movie.
“I have never seen a film being as influenced by the incidents of its making as Highway. These adventures of the north Indian road journey have many stories to tell. We bring these to you in The Highway Diaries,” says Imtiaz.
Highway will release on 21st February, 2014!
